barack obama had the house, the senate and himself one party rule. if themed them -- they wanted to get things done like trying to figure out the mythical tax for shipping jobs overseas, they should have done it then. but the fact is, they didn't pass a budget then when they had complete control and they're not passing one now. guest: , look the republicans had a meeting after the inauguration where they made a clear decision to block anything he tried to do at any cost. that's been evidenced by their entire voting record, voting no down the line as guy pointed out. and the reason a budget can't get passed because house republicans will not pass a reasonable budget. they pass a budget with bunch of special interest and balloons the deficit. that's not acceptable and that's not what the voters want. that's why we need to kick the tea party out of congress. when we do that, we can finally get a reasonable budget passed. guest: i'm glad we're going to conspiracy theories on secret meetings. let's focus on the fact that the senate has not passed a budget. we can have every excuse in the b

to remind viewers that he does not support president obama. in the last debate, scott brown would not commit to supporting mitch mcconnell as senate majority leader. she will try to tie him to the republican party. in the last the great -- in the last debate with scott brown, he said that justice scalia was a model for him, and elizabeth warren hit him hard on that. scott brown has said that the conservative is an ideal justice for him. host: why are people paying attention to this race? guest: this is one of the closest races in the country. scott brown is one of two vulnerable republican incumbent senators, up for reelection this year. the other one being dean heller in nevada. scott brown has been ahead in some. we've kind of seen consistently her being a few points up over scott brown. there was one poll out this week that was considered encouraging for brown, showing him up again, possibly, and apparently as a result of mitt romney's debate performance. mitt romney, being a former governor of massachusetts, is very unpopular in the state. most polls have showed him lagging obama by a hu
republican senators. it started as the gang of six. this was a group that was frustrated two years ago when the bipartisan national fiscal commission, the commission that congress established and president obama signed into law to deal with the nation's rising debt load -- the fiscal commission not, came up with a plan, and it essentially went nowhere because they did not get enough votes from the panel to spark the next stage with these legislative actions. so, a group of six senators started meeting privately, sometimes in secret, to try to see if there was something big to do with this framework. these are very big political and policy decisions. they are very complex. they take a lot of political will at a time when congress does not seem to have that kind of will. these six, perhaps they could come up with something. they have been meeting for two years. they added two members. we could go through the list. the republican side -- senator sexy chambliss, senator mike crapo, -- senator chambliss, senator mike crapo, tom coburn of oklahoma, and and and the democratic side is mark warner,
into that category. the people who voted for obama last time who will vote for romney this time, those people are not that hard to find. host: he used to work at the washington post. he covered the political rise of senator john and works and his political aspirations. he worked for the detroit news for six years. comments are coming in about the comments mitt romney made to the register about abortion. one says it was a generous assessment. others would have said he lied. no abortion legislation should be. news for those liberals concerned they would be made illegal. is he demoting some who will not come out on election day? guest: his connection to them is tenuous. in his view has evolved 180 degrees for 1 u.s. governor of massachusetts. i think there is something else going on. president obama has managed to alienate those voters. it reminds me of one president clinton was running for reelection. i am telling my kids you are not supposed to use this word, but they hated him. it blinded them. . they won't up making some decisions. bob dole campaign was hexed from the start. -- they wound up
